Seasons of life collide with a season of war
Carnage rains down on young and old
The world weeps tears of anger and compassion
While those in Ukraine struggle to hold on
to their disrupted displaced lives
Snow falls as they hug their children

Today at d’Verse, Lisa asked us to write a Quadrille of 44 words about the seasons. As an older person, I think about both the changing seasons and my own season of life. War is a vortex of evil that can happen in any season, but for us who are older it only speeds our demise.
In our digital world we see the horrors of the war in Ukraine every day on our news broadcasts. One cannot help but put themselves in their place as we watch and wonder what we would do in their place.
